T1013 for new clients

Anyone else having issues with CRA after sending the T1013 for new clients? I don’t have access and this is the message that I get …and yes we did fill out level “2” and asked for :
Online access by a business (Eligible for T1013 EFILE)
TaxCycle message after a “Successful Transmission” :

Looks pretty normal.

Yes, but I don’t have access.

yup. lots of those

I have experienced that on occasion where it must be a problem on CRA end. Sometime later they show up. A call to electronic services department, if it still exists, might be in order.

Sometimes they don’t grant you immediate access, also if the person has a c/o under his name it will not be granted until the taxpayer calls CRA to confirm

I had one that said I will only have access after the tax return is filed. This was for a first time filer.

Different messages in those cases. Paul’s message appears to be the standard message given when access is usually immediate. Hence his post.

Try to get access again in 1-2 hours. Maybe they are backlogging a bit.

I usually get access by the next day for that situation.

Haven’t it come up this year but IIRC there can be a delay if you are using a “care of” address for the client.
